reduction, one of the great antidote between harry reid on obama and nancy pelosi -- obama is going on at some length. nancy pelosi leans over and hit the button and starts a conversation with harry reid. that illustrates everything. it illustrates a lack of trust that simply isn't there. they see him as an empty seat. he hasn't been able to deliver on anything. conservatives tend to think that they see obama as an evil genius, which i think he is an ordinary man trying to make things the best that he can. but progressives are deeply disappointed in them. they had a much bigger agenda. they needed a personality like an lbj to make that happen. hillary might have had a personality. she probably does, actually. this is someone who is solitary and bookish and those are adjectives that describe him is unlikely to retreat to a private office in the white house. his own staff doesn't know how to decide on three issues. >> host: let's go back to the first chapters. you talk about the enormous influence of women over obama? >> guest: first of all, it sounds like it is somehow a bad thing to
was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government mand
for mitt romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? i think the same for president obama. i think republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected. hold allhink he could the republicans against an obama version of a budget deal. i think that have more leverage over members are around campaign finance issues and other things. i think obama -- even if the democrats don't control all of congress, he would have some leverage to go around leadership. people say bipartisanship, but there are two forms of bipartisanship. one is the leadership negotiant and the other is -- the premise of both of those is, there has to be personal relationships to develop before that can occur. the ambassador pointed out that governor romney will have those talents. i think president obama knows he has them, he will just have to now demonstrate the more. >> so the reality is this, we are a few short weeks away from the real work starting. be a moment ofl real clarity after the election. we will all wake up the next morning and some will be happy and some will be sad. then t
's visit to nevada prior to that, harry reid academy the presidential nominee on his religion. this is what reid said. he coming to a state where there is a lot of members of the church. they understand that he is not the face of mormonism. my first thought would be, some do you think you are the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people in the church hope not. without being disrespectful, it's not the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm it's very important to him. i think he evidences that by what he does. when he released tax information 30% of his income away, biggest part to his church, i admire people that back up their beliefs with what they actually do. his particular faith is not the same as mine but i want people who practice what they preach. i would love to see people in office and frankly people who wanted credibility with me to demonstrate that what they stand for on sunday is also what they stand for the rest of the week. one way we find that out is how they invest even their resources. now, if you are going to bring
pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- do you want them taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health -- a significant health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- number one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. -- on their parent's policies. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government manda
, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate about his potential than his wife, ann. just
majority leader harry reid, the highest ranking mormon in congress attacked the republican presidential nominee on his religion. he says he's coming to the state where there's a lot of members of the lds church and they had he is not the face of mormonism. my first naught senator reid, do you think you're the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people hope not. without being disrespectful it's not been the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm that it's very important to him. i think the evidence is not by what he says, but what he does. when he released tax information and gives nearly 30% of his income away the biggest part to his church, i have to say i salute that. i admire people who don't just claim believe in something, but back it with what they actually do and give. and his particular faith is not the same as mine, but i'm wanting people who practice what they preach. i'd love to see people in office and frankly, people who want credibility with me to demonstrate that what they want for on sunday is also what they stand f
be an interesting tactical question for romney does he have to sit down with harry reid or sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight others and the same for president obama. i think the republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected and i do not believe that john boehner can hold if he has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of the personal relationship
, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read the bills. i want to vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. that is evidenced by my voting record. >> it is striking that we look to your campaign ads, is president obama that you see touting your work. we could not find any instance with you with governor romney having made any campaign appearances with him. there is an appearance york distancing yourself from governor romney to appeal to voters, specifically here in massachusetts. being " -- being too close to him may be a problem. [applause] >> as you know, in the second- most bipartisan member. i take pride in that. i was also proud to stand with him when
and to the republicans, and then you pull back because nancy pelosi and harry reid say don't do it, and now you're attacking republicans for proposing exactly what you proposed to them, and bob woodward has in a document! >> well, i have a healthy suspicion the moderator's probably read bob's book. and he's a great moderator. that's why i think this debate will be fascinating because i think there are some really good questions that you've just raised that will be raised tonight. >> and by the way, you can also ask mitt romney, mike barnicle, why is it that you're not proposing any reform for medicare and social security? >> you know, this discussion is actually kind of fascinating when you listen to it because it gets to, i think, one of the larger points about this election. if you put your ear to the ground, not in washington, not to politicians or other journalists, if you put your ear to the ground, you get the sense that this election really is about the american people asking one question of both candidates, where are you going to take us, and how much is it going to cost? and that's wha
either harry reid nor john boehner know how it will come out, much less mitt romney or barack obama. i am not going to pretend, other than it is going to be an all- consuming mass, which i do not think the public is ready for or has any idea is coming. i think no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and the end of the year is going to be very traumatic for the country. >> let me refined this and maybe do fred first, and then glen. sometimes, and doing some things to entitlements -- sometimes, at doing things to implements and domestic spending, it is "inevitable-- pretty inevitable. those are things a democrat will have to deal with. what are the political consequences? and on the republican side, there has to be more revenue, and defense is going to take a hit. that is going to be ugly medicine for republicans. fred, if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi, or glen, if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or eric cantor, and they are about to go in the room and get a lot of blood on their hands, and the ankle deep in blood -- and be ankle-deep in
. they are going to oppose it. harried and mitch mcconnell will pose -- harry reid and mitch mcconnell will oppose it. i am going to fight to change the rules of the filibuster. i am going to announce $1 trillion in savings by cutting back on congress' pensions and the executive branch. if we want to balance this budget, we have to lead with that kind of an effort. i expect to persuade the american people. >> here is the next question. >> i believe it is senator fisher. >> i will defer to you. >> senator kerrey, nebraska has the second lowest unemployment rate in the nation at 4%, but the bureau of labor statistics say the rate is twice that. can the people that were discouraged or working part- time. what can you do to improve that situation? >> first of all, there is nothing worse in life than wanting to work and not finding a job. in a lot of ways it is sort of outside of the reach of the experience of of both senator fisher and myself. this is a difficult thing for us to understand. so i would say first of all you have to keep production and agriculture healthy. i talked about ethanol earlier.
people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for p
